COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rahr's Red is a delicious, medium-bodied amber beer. As it crosses over your tongue, you'll notice a bit of caramel-like malt character. You'll also notice a slight hops bitterness-there to remind you that despite its subtle flavoring Rahr's Red is a Texas beer.

Deep amber/red colored pour with an ok initial head and lacing... on par anyway. The aroma was bready and nutty with some caramel underneath. The flavor was all of that with some toasted notes creeping in. Light body with some hop support in the aftertaste. Not as crisp and clean as needed to stand out (some light fruity ester flavors, seemed to not be from the hops), but certainly a drinkable beer.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Yellowish, dark gold, faint white head. Big caramel nose, very clean and crisp. Decent note of toast, then pleasent piney, hoppy finish. Not bad, not distinctive, but certainly a nice session brew. Sampled at Noogfest2.

smells bready and like a swill lager, and possibly a hint of banana. flavor is bread and swill. nothing exciting. touch of honey.

Sweet honey nose, copper color, low foamy head. Honey tastes, cinnamon end. Odd detergent tastes. Thin body, not so good overall.

5000 (6179) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottle: Pale orangish copper, quite clear, moderate foamy off-white head, fairly nice lacing, soft carbonation.   Pale malt nose, slight grain, otherwise very subtle.   Very slight burnt corn syrup as well.   Extremely pale malt flavor, otherwise virtually flavorless.   No caramel maltiness normally associated with the style.   Very small hop characteristics on the finish.   This one is clean, but overall way too light of an example.   Needs more UMPH!   Thanks Tad for the freebie!

This Amber lager could be a little darker in color...... I was expecting a Red Beer..... go figure. This beer, another offering from the Rahr Brewery in Fort Worth is also worth the effort! It’s a well balanced beer with nice caramel undertones balanced by spicy hops. Again, a very dry beer - perfect for the Texas heat. A nice head stayed during the entire tasting - which didn’t take very long. Again, a strong beer from Fort Worth, TX!

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Obtained from Secret Santa. Malty aroma that was just ordinary. More of an orange body with decent head than settle like a bacteria sample under a microscpoe. Medium maly body for flavor and some crisp freshness on the finish where that came fro I don’t know. Middle of the raod beer her but have had a lot worse.

I wanted to like this beer (Texan pejudice) I really did. But there was just nothing going on here for me. Very thin. Very watery. They must have saved a fortune on ingredients. Ho hum. Pleasant color. October swill. Drinkable but overpriced. Attractive packaging. Cool bottlecap. It just needs...................well, anything.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade w/ TChrome. Pours a light copper, craggy white 1/2 inch head, lively carbonation, good lacing down to the end. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and soft floral hops. Not overwhelming but very pleasant. Cookie-like malty flavor with a lightly bitter and crisp finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation on the mouthfeel. This is a nice all around session beer. If this were available in my area it would definately be a regular fridge filler. Good example of a traditionally less than stellar "Amber Lager style.
